Human-human stigmergy

I am very sad that such a useful report as this was intended for military use but this is a very well researched discussion of stigmergy in human systems that provides an excellent grounding for anyone interested in the area. However, it feels a bit like using the results of Nazi eugenics experiments: useful knowledge, immorally obtained.


  • One could express the same feelings about technical writing and instructional design, if one finds the military that thoroughly repugnant.

    I wonder if the author is the same H. Van Dyke Parunak, biblical scholar, with whom I corresponded when I was writing my master's thesis on the discourse structure of the Book of Romans?

  • Now *that's* a fascinating connection! Can't be many people with that name.
